I'm 22, married to a wonderful man (26) and I have 2 dogs (Nemo and Buddy, both Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Nemo though is mixed with a Sh*tzu). I live in an apartment downtown in a very busy city. I'm 165 pounds. I consider my ideal weight to be about 130. I used to be fairly fit when I was younger, I did a lot of team sports. Unfortunately, I don't have any friends and I'm not big on joining strangers for a game of basketball or tennis. My husband has Cerebral Palsy and he has very bad balance so he finds it hard to do some things that other people find easy. He's taking me out bowling for my birthday, so hopefully that goes well and he doesn't get frustrated with himself and we can make it a regular thing. It's not much of an exercise, but it's some kind of activity at least.
I have a sweet tooth and I'm a picky eater. Not a good combination. I didn't eat much in the way of fancy foods when I was younger. Our staples were pasta, potatoes, meat... generally, very bland. We weren't big into the spices since my dad had problems with his esophagus and I have IBS. So it was hard to make something that we could both eat.
Don't get me wrong, I will try new foods, but the fact of the matter is, I don't like a lot of foods. Just trying to find a healthy cereal I'm met with food that I find bland or even gross. Fiber 1 for example is so bland I can barely eat it even with a tsp of sugar. I love vegetables like broccoli and cauliflower, but I hate almost all fruits. I don't mind apples, bananas (very occasionally) and my mother-in-law made some dessert with blueberries once that was very very good.
I hate cooking, although I think I can do a passable job if I have a good recipe to follow. My husband and I often eat out because I don't feel like cooking. I've been trying to find a good cookbook that has pictures for every recipe, but it's hard. I can look at a 300 page book of recipes and I find that I'm only attracted to 10% of the food listed.
Anyway, I'm sure that's more than enough and probably contained a lot of unnecessary information. My goals are to loose 30-35 pounds, become fit & lean, & to finally feel good about the way I look and believe my husband when he says I'm beautiful.
